Installation Tips
  • Gloves can be new or used, but they should be clean and dry
  • Use care when handling the GloveTacts to avoid touching the adhesive more than is necessary
  • The adhesive will permanently set after its been pressed on and allowed to cure
    • Make sure you are happy with placement before applying pressure
    • Depending on the glove material it may be possible to lift and reposition, but doing so may reduce the adhesive strength
    • Once they are in place, apply firm pressure to transfer adhesive into the glove material
    • Allow adhesive to set for 24 hours prior to glove use for best performance
  • If edges of GloveTacts become unglued, use small scissors or a razor blade to carefully trim the loose edges only
Installation procedure
  • Choose which size to use
    • For insulated (winter style) gloves use the large contacts
    • For non-insulated gloves use the small contacts
    • If in doubt, or if the small ones provide inconsistent touch during use the large ones
  • Determine where to attach the GloveTacts
    • In order for them to work, they must make contact with the device screen
  • Lift the contact from the base
    • Avoid unnecessary touching of adhesive
  • Attach contact to glove
    • Gently position it on the glove
    • If needed, lift off glove to reposition (depending on glove material this can result in reduced adhesive performance)
  • Apply firm pressure transfer adhesive
    • The adhesive needs to transfer into the glove material to provide maximum adhesion
  • Let adhesive to cure for 24 hours before using glove
